LA ROCHELLE, FRANCE (NOVEMBER 27, 2019) (REUTERS) TUGBOAT CAPTAIN, JEAN-YVES LAGARDE, INSIDE CONTROL DECK OF BOAT BOATS DOCKED AT PIER LAGARDE INSIDE CONTROL DECK (SOUNDBITE) (French) TUGBOAT CAPTAIN, JEAN-YVES LAGARDE, SAYING: "It's completely normal to retire at 55 years old, considering the hardship. In fact, it's a job that is very demanding, with a lot of hardship - working at night, working in hostile conditions, in places that are permanently changing. There's fatigue, there's a lot of movement, it's noisy, there are vibrations, and the work hours can get quite long."

I think people are attached to it." (SOUNDBITE) (French) TUGBOAT CAPTAIN, JEAN-YVES LAGARDE, SAYING: "Why change? It's not more onerous to a system, to a government that absolutely wants to get rid of this rather than let it live on. It functions, and it works well." CAPTAIN AND OTHER CREW ON BOAT BOAT AT SEA VARIOUS OF CAPTAIN ON DECK (SOUNDBITE) (French) TUGBOAT CAPTAIN, JEAN-YVES LAGARDE, SAYING: "There's no perfect system. Maybe pensions are not good enough when it comes to active employees. Maybe there's a big gap in earnings and a loss of purchasing power upon retirement. However, there are little compensations. We know very well that retiring young is an advantage, no one is fooled by this." LAGARDE WALKING AT PIER BOATS DOCKED AT PIER SIGN THAT READS (French): "ATLANTIC PORT LA ROCHELLE"
